The Heart Rhythm Society’s Annual Board Review Course is the preferred resource for physicians seeking a comprehensive review of content focused on preparation for the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certification and recertification examinations in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology (CCEP). The Board Review Course also provides preparation for the International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners (IBHRE) exams for electrophysiology (CEPS) and device (CCDS) certification.The course provides expert guidance on the essential EP curriculum. For those not preparing for an exam, this course is an excellent update and overview of cardiac electrophysiology. 

See the newly published (July 2017) ABIM Exam Blueprint for Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology  and read the Board Review Course Director's assessment of the primary changes.
